Okayama JALT:

Students' motivation and resistance in language classrooms

Date: Sunday, June 4th, 2006 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Keiko Sakui

Description:
Language teachers know that many students show motivation and enthusiasm for learning English. But we also see some students who are not interested in what we try to teach and even show resistance in various ways. In this presentation, we will explore, from an educational-sociological perspective, what student motivation and resistance mean and how they affect teachers' classroom decisions. The presentation will adopt an interactive style in which participants can share experiences and thoughts on the topic to raise awareness and learn from each other.
